Beyond Fright Review: BROKEN HORSES

BH1

If there’s a certain type of sub-genre of films that I love as much as the horror genre, without a doubt that type of film is gritty, betrayal-filled Tex-Mex crime noir sun-genre.

teeth-and-blood

Out now, is the vampire entry TEETH & BLOOD. It’s a film that takes a mostly African-American cast and instead of doing what Hollywood has typically done (offer up Blaxploitation films), it gives horror fans a serious approach, something that is welcomed, with the film’s story being the most important aspect. Actor/rapper Sean Christopher (AKA […]
